How do I add people to a task to reduce the duration of a task? I have a automatically scheduled task that takes 15 days to complete with one person assigned when i try to add people it doesn't reduce the time it takes to complete the task. I am not good with MS Project and need to do this to complete an assessment for college but I can't figure it out.
You need to select "fixed work" instead of "fixed duration." You can find that functionality in the Task Information area. When you have fixed work selected, and you add a resource, that will change the duration. If you have fixed duration selected and you add resources, it will reduce resource utilization percentage.
